For me at least.

i've been using a old painted canopy that came with my king, which is all glued and taped up. I received a BeltCP canopy which is bigger, figure I can see it better worked, it fits good, less fighting with battery etc. Flew with it for last 3 days without any problem.

Today, flying it around and link pop off in the air, blade came down and around and chopped the new canopy off, heli fall off the sky from 20ft on grass, no damage to anything else. I have some Blade 400 replacement links so I installed them, it seems that Balls on the metal swash are worn down. Links goes on and off rather easy then before. I only have the short version of those replacement ball links.

Sorry to hear about this. The purple head uses aluminum balls, very bad and wear quickly. Take a look at your anti-rotation pin. Mine wore through in 2 months. I currently have combation of B400 short and long balls installed along with a few Align balls.

So what did you replace the antirotation pin with? Mine is cut about a 1/4 way through but its seen a lot of use.

I used an Align one that came with hardware pack I had picked up for the ball links in it. Its huge and I had to dremel away the AR stand to make it fit.

Another thing you can do is bend the AR bracket back a little. That way when the pin moves up and down, it contacts the bracket in different places. That or just go buy a B400 swash and be done with it.

Had to do that with CNC head but the swash moves diagonally on the rotation pin so it eats away at the whole length of the pin there is no way to move the bracket anymore without it binding or slipping out.
